Default Another tube question

Ok so just for the heck of it the other day I took my tube to the pool to play with the kids and I noticed that one of the sides doesn't really look like the other one. If you look at the pic the right "arm" (?) is crooked. I've tried shaking it, taking the tube out but it still looks like this. Is there any way I can correct this?

Thanks in advance

It will twist a bit when you sit in it.
If you're just worried about how it looks.... I promise not to peek

Might be the strap was off kilter when you blew up the tube?

does that tube have multiple internal bladders? if it does, i would say that the right one is not sitting in the tube outer shell correctly.

If it only travels in clockwise circles... return it. If it tracks straight, no problem. milt.

Deflate it, unzip it, sprinkle some baby powder inside all around, inflate half way, let the air out again, and inflate to normal pressure. Should take care of the problem.

The tube is a single bladder and I'm sure the problem doesn't affect the performance but it gets on my nerves. Thanks Mojo, I'll give that a try.
